Shade from the heat. A place to relax. A place overlooking water. A peaceful place. A secluded place to lay low and commune with nature. Overlook Park is a small urban oasis hidden just of a very busy, bustling thoroughfare. Take a sandwich. Take a salad. Take whatever you want, but just go.

This is a small park - 6 car parking spots and 1 disabled parking spot. It is in a quiet location on the shore of Lake Jessup, which is allegedly full of alligators. It has a boardwalk and a picnic area, but no other facilities. It is blissfully quiet - apart from the background noise of vehicles on the nearby bridge crossing the lake - but the birds seem oblivious to it, and are not spooked by human presence. The trees are interesting, and the birds are a pleasure to watch. We visited on a Thursday in February, and we were the only people there - even the alleged alligators were absent! But, despite not seeing any alligators, we enjoyed the peace and relative quiet, and the birdlife. The park is open daily from 0800 to dusk, and access/parking is free. It is very small with no walks/trails to go on, but a gentle stroll down the boardwalk is enjoyable, and it is a great spot to stop for a picnic. You might even see an alligator or two - we didn't!!
